Whoah.... Good to know thank you so much

Update :

Still haven't gotten my Z back from the repair shop.... But honestly I'm now once again leaning towards returning the K&N and sticking with the stock intake replacement .

I don't know. Keep seeing YouTube videos and other horror stories .... About cars with this intake overheating , sagging and damaging wires and other parts....

Not sure anymore to be honest . My car is so old and the mileage so high ....
